This last Friday, I worked at Brass Razoo and my partner in crime, Eden Jo, worked with me.  She was quite the little worker!  (You would be proud, Elise.)  Eden asked people if they needed dressing rooms and if she could carry their items to the dressing room.  She swept the floor and dusted the furniture.  She even tried to seal the deal with a couple who were looking at a Simply Grove dresser.  She almost got the sale but they couldn’t come to an agreement at the last minute.  Good try!!
When the store was empty of customers, we practiced our mirror poses.  Eden has mastered quite a few.  She seems to favor the hand on the hip.  Oh Eden Jo!

I have a hidden passion in life.  CLEANING!!  I love to clean and I love living in a clean space.  If my home is disorganized and dirty, I don’t feel in control.  Weird, I know but it is how I stay organized and on top of my to do listsssssss.  I saw this image over on Two Ellie (I love Paula)  and instantly wanted to deep clean my laundry room and go shopping for new cleaning products.  I may have a cleaning sickness.

My husband is the coolest person I know!!  Some of my readers have told me that he looks like Gerard Butler.  My friends tell me that he is extremely funny.  My family tells me that I am pretty darn blessed to be married to him.  Yep, I am.  I asked Mr. Hottie if he could give me his {one space}.  Here it is.

“I want to read in this space and stare out the window.  However, the binoculars make the previous statement sound a little creepy.”

Thanks babe!!!

If your boyfriend, hubby, guy friend is looking for a cool new pad, I think I found it for him!  Or for you and him.  Or for you, if your guy.  Its just so darn cool with all of its masculine lines and heavy textiles!  But even a guy’s space calls for a crystal chandelier.

I was sitting in my living room with my hubby last night, chatting about life, kids, goals and everything else under the sun.  Don’t you love good chats with good friends or family??  Anyways, I took this picture of my favorite corner of the living room while chatting.  It feels so cozy.  Maybe tonight I will make some coffee and read a good book, sitting in this corner.  Or maybe I won’t and say I did!  xxoo

A great group of bloggers offered 27 organizational tips for the winter issue of The Nest.  I was thrilled to be included, with offering my favorite tip on how to organize your jewelry in a beautiful way.  I was inspired by my lovely design partner, Elise Vaughn, and her amazing wall creation (seen above), sold at Brass Razoo.  Pick up the winter issue to see more!

This room is a great reminder that it is perfectly OK to have some fun with your space.  I love the “star” on the wall!
